There are some very clever and charming ways to implement the beautiful
pieces by Jim Shore into year-round decorating themes
around the home; each piece is so intricately detailed and inspires such
whimsy, that it is truly a shame to pack these pieces up as the holidays
pass by. These lovely Jim Shore masterpieces deserve a place in the
home all year, and there are some clever ways to integrate them so family
and guests can enjoy them at any time!
Part of the reason why these delightful ornaments have become such a mainstay of consumers' collections is the affordability and expansive selection. Even those collectors that want to add to their array but that don't want to spend a small fortune have buying options. There are small ornaments- appropriate for both a holiday tree or to hang and accent a window- that are very affordable; there are also some larger, grand figurines and specialty pieces that will make a more monumental splash in the home when purchased or gifted to another Jim Shore fan or collector. This range of styles and price points makes these pieces available and accessible for lovers of beautiful pieces anywhere! These ornaments are found in some local venues, though those who shop via online merchants may find the most exhaustive selection to choose from. Furthermore, some television promotions via shopping programs or dedicated channels, may also yield some commemorative pieces or alluring pricing incentives for prospective shoppers as well.
There are themes and scenes found within these Jim Shore artworks that suit far more than simply a holiday tree or decorating plan. These can be hung, as mentioned, in windows for a welcoming accent; another idea is to set up a year-round tree, in a foyer or kitchen. Accent with clear or complimentary hued lights and some dried or silk floral accessories. This brings a summery feel to the tree, which can be an artificial Christmas tree or a good-size potted plant. Cover it with these special ornaments that are able to be hung or strung for a wonderful year-round conversation piece that all will love and admire! Change up the lights or accenting floral sprays to modify for the season or imminent holidays, such as Halloween, Easter, or Independence Day. This could become a fun tradition in many homes, instilling in children that there is wonder found at any time of year!
